Unlike Chicory, I’ve been eating fennel the last couple of summers. The intensity of this herb is astounding and a wonderful taste that one gets in Cascadia summer. I heard it grows wild north of San Francisco, as we recently saw aside Highway 1 on the way to Stinson Beach. And to think this card from the 2015 August Poetry Postcard Fest was going up the coast about 1,000 miles. From Stinson Beach anyway.
